I have an array that looks like this:


and I have a subroutine that will print this in 2 columns but I'd like to put the array element next to each element so that i can print something like this:

1. laptop                        3. computer
2. books                        4. window

Thanks in advance for the help!

sub print{
      my @values = @_;
         s/^\s*(.*?)\s*$/$1/s for (@values);
      print $values[$_],("\t\t\t","\n")[$_ % 2] for 0..$#values;
